Workshops

Taking Control Of the Farmers Story.

Recognising the growing divide between city and country, and the need to communicate what it is to be an Aussie farmer, Coonamble played host to a workshop for farmers to help tell their story through video. NSW DPI Rural Resilience Program worked with Coonamble District Landcare to deliver an exciting smartphone video-making workshop for Coonamble district's farmers, held on 31st July. Aimed at farmer's learning how to tell and share their stories, the one-day workshop helped farmers to tell and share their stories and experiences through short videos made on their smartphone or tablet (such as an ipad). With such widespread use of smart phones, most people have a video camera in their back pockets every time they go out to the paddock.
